Tribal bodies want Morigaon MLA in Cabinet

By Correspondent

MORIGAON, May 21 - Three tribal organisations of central Assam � Tiwa Cultural Society, Tribal Employees Association and Tiwa Intellectual Circle � have appealed to BJP chief ministerial candidate Sarbananda Sonowal and the party national president Amit Shah to induct Morigaon MLA Rama Kanta Deori in the next ministry of Assam.

In a letter to Sonowal and Shah, the organisations said that after independence, only two persons from the indigenous tribes of Morigaon district were inducted into the State Cabinet and they were Motiram Bora in the Bishnu Ram Medhi ministry in 1960-70 and Kaliram Dekaraja in the Kesab Gogoi ministry in 1982.

It is a matter of serious concern that all the Congress governments gave importance to religious minority MLAs while giving Cabinet berths from the undivided Nagaon district during the post-independence period, thereby depriving the indigenous people, alleged the organisations.

This time all the indigenous tribes in Morigaon supported Rama Kanta Deori and he must be given due importance with a berth in the Sarbananda Sonowal ministry that will take oath on May 24, the organisations demanded in the letter.
